Takeoff 8/29: Looking for Talent, any Talent


Note: The Boogie Factor has officially been launched. I want to give you a better understanding about this metric. It's something that we've been working on since the end of 2019 season. It's a metric that takes every single factor into account. We are talking about EVERYTHING. Exit velocity, Average batted ball distance, weather, stadium, air density, expected wOBA, not only ISO, but expected weighted ISOs, K%, matchup, XwOBA, XFIP, Money Lines, Oddsmakers expectations, etc. There isn't one category that will be unaccounted for. The only * I would put for now, is give it time to soak in a larger 2020 sample and we should be seeing amazing results for the rest of the season.


**We're gearing up for our first 2020 podcast coming soon! (sorry for the delay, just waiting on a shipment to come in). We'll be collecting any questions you may have until then. Here is the place to drop in your questions https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSep3xAZ_gDFKiUmkilpPfBSymkRnc5Gr8jEUZ1oZgfJ-o2w6w/viewform?usp=sf_link



Primary Arms

Secondary Arms


L.Lynn: Moved down to secondary tier. Read the update on why.


J.Sheffield: Looks to be the low owned overlooked arm of the day. He's at least shown some form of talent, unlike the majority of arms going here.


L.Weaver: Becoming more of an option the more I look into his advanced data. His K upside is as good as ever, and that's a nice bonus to have on this slate filled with mediocre to below average K stuff.
